  Television Studies
Television studies is the relatively recent, aspirationally disciplinary name given to the academic study of television.
The "television" of television studies is a relatively new phenomenon, just as many of the key television scholars are employed in departments of sociology, politics, communication arts, speech, theatre, media and film studies.
Thus television, along with other of the mass media, is conceptualised within frameworks principally concerned with the maintenance of social order; the reproduction of the status quo, the relationship between the state, media ownership and citizenship, the constitution of the public sphere.

 The Foundation's Radio and Television Grants, 1987-1997
How it has worked with radio and television between 1987 and 1997 is the subject of this chapter.
Worse, as the industry increasingly recognizes, public television stations do not act like a network; just because PBS is feeding a program at a particular time, local stations across the country may not air it then, or ever.
Although grants for television and radio are a small percentage of the Foundation's total grant portfolio, in terms of what people see and hear that they associate with the Foundation and the issues it cares about, they are an important component.

 Media Art Net | Douglas, Stan: Television Spots   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Produced between 1987 and 1988, the «Television Spots» are exactly what they claim to be: these twelve, short video sequences were originally planned as inserts within the regular advertisements on Canada’s private television network.
Yet their content, the dramaturgy of the action, and what’s depicted, run contrary to the usual expectations of viewers; they undermine the usual construction of their needs; in doing so, the [representation of the] public’s identity is shown in the end as a greatness defined purely though the medium.
The «Television Spots» appear as ‹narrative› fragments spontaneously readable and formally easy to identify but their imagery shows ‹empty places›: interchangeable performance locations, urban areas lacking any dramatic or narrative value—as everyday and banal as the ‹action› or the ‹events,› images normally left out between edited shots.

 Television Obscurities - Keeping Obscure TV From Fading Away Forever   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
With the introduction of the FOX network and the increasing popularity of cable, broadcast television (traditionally the playground of The Big Three: ABC, CBS and NBC) was losing its stranglehold on the viewing audience.
However, in 1987 FOX was only broadcasting once a week and there was still plenty of airtime for the new FOX affiliates as well as regular independent television stations to fill.
As the 1987-1988 television season began, one syndicated drama in particular was expected to draw huge ratings.

 900 Numbers Still Have Role on Television
When most people think about 900 numbers for television, they think about those ads with girls in hot tubs that have been seen on American television since 1987.
Such numbers first were used on television when ABC wanted a way to gauge public opinion of who won the 1980 presidential debate between President Jimmy Carter and challenger Ronald Reagan.
Moreover, text messaging can be either standard rate (free to the television viewer) or premium rate (where the viewer pays a fee to participate).

 David Buckingham on the EastEnders Audience
Buckingham's (1987) study of viewers of EastEnders (published as part of his book, Public Secrets: 'EastEnders' and its Audience) was based on group discussions in 1986 with 60 young viewers in the London area (some at schools in or near the East End).
A belief in the realism of television, in its ability to 'tell the truth' about aspects of the social world which are often hidden or misrepresented, does not necessarily entail a belief in the reality of its fictional world.
Nevertheless, in criticising and discussing the characters, viewers may well be using television as a vehicle for working out their own ideological perspectives, or for giving voice to their own needs or desires.

 Dáil Éireann - Volume 381 - 08 June, 1988 - Radio and Television Bill, 1987: Report Stage.
On technology grounds alone, if a new television station was to operate in Ireland tomorrow it would have to be on the cable networks that exist in Cork, Dublin and other smaller towns such as Waterford and Galway.
On technological gounds, on the grounds that this is the way television broadcasting will emerge in the future, the Minister is making a mistake in confining himself to one television station.
I believe that if the IRTC are doing their job properly, as set down in the Bill and if the stations are meeting the obligations laid down under this legislation, it would be absolutely as a last resort that we would resort to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission procedures.
